Portrayed by Andy Buckley

Matt Danon is Josh and Jake Kaminski's estranged father. He is a recurring character in season 5 of Young & Hungry and first seen in the episode, Young & Josh's Dad.


Matt is estranged and has a very complicated relationship with his son, Josh. Josh barely knows his father and it is currently unknown where he lives, although its more likely in San Fransisco.


Young & Josh's Dad

Matt wants to patch things up with his son, Josh, who doesn't want to see him and the two don't get along well as they barely know each other. When Gabi and Sofia pick Matt up at the airport, Josh tricks Gabi in to believing he is with his dad, which causes Gabi to think she picked up a stranger. However, when they're getting gas, Gabi accidentally runs Matt over, landing him in the hospital. Josh visits his father, but tells him he will help him with the cost of the hospital, but will not let him have another dime, still thinking his dad is after his money.

Young & Softball

Matt wants, again, to try to get to know Josh and wants to go to Elliot's softball match, which Josh is apart of, but gets the wrong impression from Josh when Josh plays on Elliot's gay team.
